The project, located on an industrial site in Panchkula, India, challenged the monotonous surroundings by breaking stereotypical design solutions. The client wanted the result to be both chic and contemporary.

However, the by-laws did not allow any drastic measures to be employed. Therefore, the entire project uses metal fabrications to make a façade that gives the two buildings one face.

Inspired by the organic planes of the art of Origami, an external screen of expanded metal mesh was unanimously decided as the best solution. Further, to make the design site sensitive an additional layer of FRP panels was added, which also helped in reducing south heat gain.

The FRP panels were created in the industrial workshop of the Furniture factory itself for the designers wanted the exterior to be synchronized with the core of the factory. A mould was custom made for the panels based on the inputs given by the client and design specified by the architects.

The dazzling yellow of the panels was deliberately decided upon to provide a contrast to the dull grey of the metal mesh. The unconventional and eye-catching design of the façade provides a relief from the monochromatic, regular surroundings.
